  • Wedding week

    "Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was spotless. I was very happy with the location. I was satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: The house is lovely. We had three couples and our 2 sons staying with us. We had a lot of space to relax and to get ready for my daughters wedding nearby. The prep kitchen was very handy but the working kitchen was lacking in mixing bowls, baking sheets and casserole dishes for dinner preparation. There was no vacuum cleaner to use, and there was no information provided concerning garbage pickup, how to operate the electronics, etc."

  • Cute & Clean!

    "This is a lovely well kept little cottage. The neighborhood is perfect for walking, with a dog or not, diverse and quiet. Felt like I was a regular in 2 days! While not in the middle of things, Charleston is so easy to get around and it was actually nicer to go back to the quiet little neighborhood after our day. There are a couple of restaurants within walking distance and it was a quick getaway on day of departure since it is close to highway. Most important to me is cleanliness and this place is really clean, especially considering the age of the cottage. Very warm with attention to detail. Only negative is a dark kitchen - needs some brighter lights in there."

  • Awesome!!

    "Such a wonderful place! I did this as a surprise for my wife's birthday. In the days after I reserved it, we bought a house and she had some major health problems. We thought we might not get to go at all, but in the end we went for two days instead of the original four. It was just what we needed to get recharged and get away from all of the recent challenges. The room is great! It has everything you need to have a nice relaxing stay. We drove, and there was a parking garage about a block or two away. We didn't need the car at all to go out to eat, shop, take a carriage ride, have ice cream. All is within 1-6 blocks. We will definitely be coming back to spend more time here!"
